Characteristics of Torremilanos Montecastrillo

Torremilanos Montecastrillo is an organic red wine made with the Tempranillo variety (Tinta del país) produced by the Torremilanos winery in the D.O. Ribera de Duero.

The Peñalba López Torremilanos family acquired this traditional winemaking estate in the heart of the Ribera de Duero in 1975. From then on, they have used respectful cultivation methods and their wines are certified as organic wines.

Torremilanos Montecastrillo is a wine that comes from their own vineyards. Strains between 15 and 25 years old and planted at an altitude of 800-900 metres. A vines are trained using a trellis and pruning is carried out using the single cord and double cord Guyot method. The grapes are hand-picked and the first selection takes place in the field.

When the Torremilanos Montecastrillo grape reaches the winery, it macerates for 5 to 7 days. Fermentation is carried out with native yeasts in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature. Finally, the wine is aged for 4 months in French oak barrels.

Torremilanos Montecastrillo is a young, organic, aged wine that shows off the full freshness and nobility of the Ribera de Duero.

Tasting notes Torremilanos Montecastrillo

Torremilanos Montecastrillo 2018 is an intense red wine with floral aromas, red fruit and roasted notes. On the palate it is pleasant and fruity with mineral notes.
The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
